Managing safely v3.1 project



Introduction

As part of the Managing safely course, you have to complete a project and have it
assessed. You will be expected to carry out a risk assessment based on your own work
environment. You need to record the results on the attached sheets and submit them for
marking. Do not submit any additional material in support of your project work as only the
six parts of the A4 project will be assessed. The project can be word processed or hand
written.

When you have completed your work you should return it to












There is a two week time limit for the return of the project. Your project must be completed
and returned by




Instructions

Please read all of the instructions before starting work on your project.

The project is broken down into a number of parts. Please complete each section as
detailed below.

Part 1 description of the work tasks that are your responsibility

MS Project
Pack version 3.1

Part 6 risk control recommendations

Please complete the risk control form for all three activity hazards you have listed on part
5. Please make sure you include:

a description of the work activity and risk level from the risk assessment
existing risk controls
any further risk controls required - in relation to the work activity
the residual risk (please use the 5 x 5 matrix) - in relation to the work activity
a description of the type of monitoring required and how often - in relation to the
residual risk

Note: where you have large numbers of hazards in your work environment you will not
have space to record them all. In these circumstances, select a representative sample of
hazards for the purposes of this project and record only these. Remember that only three
hazards are required for parts 2, 3, and 4.

Each part has a maximum number of marks which can be awarded and details are given
in the table below.

Part 1 description of the work tasks that are your
responsibility



A description of permanent and temporary pieces of equipment and
substances used in your work environment

1- Excavators, used to do the ground digging and making of the trench to lay the pipe in
afterwards
2- Cranes, used to load and off-load the required material such as pipes and fittings (Valves,
Bends, Tees etc.) and civil construction material for backfilling and building of civil
works along the pipeline (Valve chambers. Thrust blocks, Line anchors etc.)
3- Plate compactors, used to compact the back filling material of the trench in layers suitable
for compaction
4- Loaders, used to load the excavated material on trucks in order to take it away from the
site to a dumping area
5- JCBs, used in the same manner as excavators and sometimes to bring the bottom of the
trench to the required level
6- Trucks to transport the required material to the site and to take away exhumed material
and the excavated material away from the site











A description of the activities carried out within your work environment


1- Excavation of the trench for the pipeline
2- Pipes transportation from the yard to the laying location
3- Pipes cleaning and preparation
4- Touch paint for the damaged coating areas
5- Preparation of the trench bottom by spreading a selected material called pipe bedding to
form a supporting layer for the pipes
6- Pipe laying, by aligning the pipes matching ends (sockets and spigots) and inserting the
rubber gaskets in the designated groove in the pipe socket and the push the two ends
together using a special tool or the backhoe of a JCB or excavator bucket
7- Backfilling of the trench is layers using selected backfilling material and using plate
compactor to achieve the required compaction target

recommended?



Excavation of the pipe trench
This may lead to electric shocks due to
hitting or getting in contact with power
cable especially High Voltage cable.
It may also lead to flooding of the trench
and drowning of the staff trapped in the
trench if a pressurized water main is
broken while excavation is carried
out
Around 20 persons working inside the
trench are likely to be affected from the
following categories
- Labourers
- Pipe fitters
- Surveyor
- Excavator operator




Yes No


Earth moving and transporting
of material
Equipment working close to the open
trench may fall in the trench.
Too many moving equipment working in
a relatively congested area may lead to
collision between them.
Unaware staff may be run over by
moving equipment
Around 30 persons working beside &
inside the trench are likely to be affected
from the following categories
- Labourers
- Supervisors
- Trucks, loaders and other equipment
operators
- Public trespassers

Yes No


Heavy loads lifting using
mechanical Handling
Lifted loads may get loose and fall on the
working personnel and equipment.
Personnel are also likely to be hit by the
lifted loads while moving it to the
required place while the load is in the
level of the workers. Excessive and/or
unbalance loading of the lifting crane is
most like to result in toppling the crane
Around 15 persons working in the
vicinity of the crane are likely to be
affected from the following categories
